Edmonton Global was created to advance economic development collaboration in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region. Our work promotes the region globally and we’re focused on attracting and retaining business investment and trade right here.

We are the first ever regional economic development corporation in the region, working to create local, regional, provincial, national, and global partnerships. We collaborate with all levels of government and economic development agencies including our 15 municipalities, Invest Alberta, Edmonton Economic Development Corporation, Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association, the Edmonton International Airport, Edmonton Health City, and Invest in Canada.
